This movie is not without its problematic elements (especially how it handled race, boy golly that was rough. The over the top girl on girl stuff ended up feeling more like a mockery of similar content place unironically in other horror films to me, so I'll say it handled gender pretty well. Everyone is almost overwhelmingly pretty, so there's that, though it does get kind of commented on and joked about).

It does manage to be an entertaining comedy that's like a mashup of Home Alone, a coming of age story, and a teen horror romp. Some gore, but mostly suspense, and plenty of laughs. Some plot holes, but a good job presenting charismatic villains. Definitely worth about 90 minutes of your time if you're into that kind of thing.
So, watched a movie last night that made me feel on unstable footing, at times thinking I knew what was up and that I had a handle on- wait, what is this new information it's awkward and messy but maybe it'll be okay and....

Holy crap, watching this movie is like being a teenager again.

.... well played, Netflix, well played.

Hey, is there anyone I know who hasn't seen Over the Garden wall? (Or who might just wanna watch it again?) It's becoming an annual tradition to watch through this animated mini-series each October, and I'd be happy to host some folks to introduce them to this little piece of storytelling and art that I love so much.

I'm open to hosting in-person at my house, or streaming it over http://Rabb.it for long-distance Halloweeny goodness. The whole thing can be watched in a little under two hours!

This is Big News in our house!
After many, many... many... years, I am finally finished with my revision of The Mountain Witch.

I feel really good about this version of the book. What started with a "little" cleaning up quickly turned into a 80-90% rewrite. I worked hard at incorporating updated explanations and various "house rules" that have become my standard mode of playing the game. The game advice chapter---which I long felt was underdeveloped in the original version---is now the longest section of the book.

At this point I am going to spend the next month or so working out the production details before starting up a Kickstarter campaign. After the project is funded, I will send the book to an editor, then to layout, and finally to the printers.

So stay tuned! There is one section that I want to crowdsource some opinions on (Abilities), which I will post in a couple days.

PS: Where else should I post this announcement besides Story-Games?
